I have tons of advice, but it's probably going to take too long to dish it all out. I might write an essay later if I have time. The only thing I will say for now is don't buy anything until you have held it in your hand. That is the most important thing of all.


How much are you wanting to spend? Do you prefer digital or film? Do you want to be able to change lenses for flexibility or are you focusing on Macro shots, landscape shots or any other type of shot all of the time? What exactly to you want to achieve with your camera?


All of these questions can almost be answered for you, determined by other answers. Still, it would be useful to know and I will try to post some detail tonight. Also wait for The Professor to reply, he is a good source of (opinionated ;)) info. Also check out dpreview.com.

My wife brought the Canon 350D.

She is just starting out in the hobby of Photography.


Its a lighter camera than the Nikon D70 & larger sensor which were the main reasons for her buying it.


Takes great pictures & imports well to iPhoto.
